Active Soccer 2 DX
Top Critic Average
Active Soccer 2 DX is an over-priced, under-produced disappointment. If you're looking for a quality soccer game on the cheap, then buy last year's FIFA.
As sports games become increasingly complex, Active Soccer 2 DX attempts to bring back the simplicity of yesteryear with mixed results.
Active Soccer 2 DX has its moments as it tries to recreate football games of old. However, even if it did that perfectly, that's all it would be doing since there's no attempt at innovation or anything that would push the genre forward. It's more or less a carbon copy of Sensible World of Soccer that doesn't play as well, has no online features whatsoever, has a wretched frontend and which features a comparatively large amount of bugs and oversights. It's also three times the price of the practically identical mobile version. Pass.
Active Soccer 2019 is an addictive gem of a game, with a huge slice of classic gameplay that creates the magic that gets you off your seat. It’s such a refreshing sight and a wonderful change of pace compared to the big two. It’s just a shame there are no online multiplayer options, but then you can’t have it all. A truly inspiring, wonderful effort that every football fan needs to support, for the good of the game.
It's not a bad game by a mile, I think that a little more TLC and ironing out and this could have been a wonderful little football game.
